Trans-disciplinary artist, Tanya has an extensive background in dance, theater, media, and literary arts. In 2005 she was found on the side of the road unconscious from a severe car-accident. Since losing her left eye and her brush with death, Tanya changed the direction of her work to the fragility of life. Besides writing and creating multimedia pieces exploring these themes, it led to the the sci-fi idea of an augmented technological upgrade of her prosthetic eye. An artistic experiment in building a miniature recording wireless device to be implanted in her prosthetic eye, Tanya is currently in development to build a prototype. Not only a way for her to transform her lost eye from a traumatic car accident bionically, but a conceptual experiment merging media and performance.
